  • 6658 - NSW Treasurer defends $450M Eraring deal

    NSW Treasurer Daniel Mookhey joins Clinton to discuss the Minns government's plan to pay Origin Energy up to $450 million to prolong Eraring, Australia’s biggest coal-fired power station.

    Mookhey insists it's not corporate welfare, detailing a deal where the government won't pay upfront but will share risk with Origin.

    Taxpayers would take a 20% profit share (capped at $40 million) and cover 80% of losses (capped at $225 million annually).

    Origin decides on the risk-sharing deal by March 31, 2025, and 2026, for the following fiscal year.

  • 6656 - Economic strain leads to a decline in pet healthcare

    As Australians face mounting financial pressures, recent research has revealed concerning trends in pet healthcare. Over 50% of pet owners are adjusting their approach to their pet’s well-being due to economic constraints, which raises serious concerns about the health and welfare of our beloved companions.

    Clinton is joined by Nadia Crighton, spokesperson for Pet Insurance Australia, who emphasises, “The results of the latest survey* underscore the profound impact of financial strain on pet healthcare decisions nationwide.”

    The study found that 21.5% of pet guardians are scaling back on regular check-ups and preventive care appointments. Additionally, nearly 13% are forgoing essential treatments for fleas, ticks, and worms. This trend is particularly worrisome given the extended tick season observed recently, which refers to a longer period of the year when ticks are active and can cause health issues in pets.
